REPORT: Spurs To Target Marc Gasol If Tim Duncan Retires

The reigning NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs are already planning for the future. Franchise player and Hall of Fame forward Tim Duncan is in the final year of his contract and there is a high possibly that he could announce his retirement after this season, if Duncan does call it a career, the Spurs will reportedly target Grizzlies center Marc Gasol in free agency.

According to the report, the Knicks will also make a run at Gasol.

Via the NY Post:

The Knicks’ main free-agent target, Marc Gasol, is also being targeted as a possible replacement to Tim Duncan assuming Ol’ Man Riverwalk retires this summer. The Knicks will be players for the Memphis center mainly because of the first three rules of real estate — location, location, location — and because Gasol is familiar with both Jackson and Derek Fisher since older brother Pau spent the best years of his career with the Lakers.

Otherwise, staying in Memphis will be appealing to Gasol, whose team is a legitimate championship contender. The Grizzlies can offer Gasol the most money, and he has grown to love the city, having lived there since high school when Pau broke in with the Grizzlies.
